This recipe is from Frank Camorra’s second book, Rustica. This was published in 2009 and I think this is the only ‘cookbook launch event’ I have been too. It was held at Movida Aqui which had only recently opened and we were served some dishes from the book, a copy of which we also took home with us. We have cooked a few things from the book since, notably beef cheeks with pedro ximenez which has been a hit. Anchovies with smoked tomato sorbet remain an ambition.
Tonight I cooked pan fried trout with jamon which we ate with a salad. I love the juiciness of pan fried rainbow trout and this variation with thyme and jamon was delicious.
12 down, 215 to go.
